Oops. Let me clarify.

I don't go above the limit for the DVD spec, so it's 9.8 Mbps total.

So - having this crazy problem creating mpeg-2 married audio-video. Basically can't be done in quicktime and media-cleaner says 226 hours (a number which goes UP as time goes by, instead of DOWN). I posted about it here and check out the replies:

I don't have experience with Cleaner so I can't help you there. I do realtime MPEG-2 captures with hardware.

Regarding those forum responses, I know of some Windows DVD authoring programs (DVDlab, for one) that use muxed MPEG files.

Regarding, MPEG2 being an archival format - it's definitely not. However it is a high quality, widely used format that most folks can watch on their computer or watch on a DVD player. Currently, there's really no other file format that can claim that.

While having a high bitrate file would be nice, a lower bitrate one will do in the meantime - especially if you'd like folks to see your work now.

Good luck,
